Alex Eala Advances to Quarterfinals at W75 Porto Singles in Portugal

Filipino tennis sensation Alex Eala continues to make waves in the international tennis scene as she secured a spot in the quarterfinals of the W75 Porto singles tournament in Portugal with an impressive victory over eighth-seeded Katarina Zavatska of Ukraine.

In a dominant display of skill and determination, Eala stormed to a commanding 6-0, 6-3 win over the world’s No. 171-ranked player, asserting her mastery over her opponent from the outset.

Despite facing some resistance from Zavatska in the second set, particularly after a hard-fought third game where the Ukrainian seized the lead at 2-1, Eala remained composed and quickly regained control of the match. With a series of well-executed plays, she surged ahead to reclaim the advantage at 3-2, ultimately blanking Zavatska for the remainder of the set to secure the victory.

With this impressive win, the 18-year-old Filipina phenom earned her spot in the quarterfinals of the singles competition, where she is set to face Hungary’s Anna Bondar, the second seed in the tournament. Bondar, ranked 120th in the world, presents a formidable challenge for Eala, but the young tennis prodigy has proven her ability to compete at the highest level and will undoubtedly give her all in the upcoming match.

The quarterfinal showdown between Eala and Bondar is scheduled for Friday evening, Manila time, promising an exciting and closely contested match for tennis fans around the world.
